Zoya Hussain made her Bollywood debut in Anurag Kashyap’s movie ‘Mukkabaaz’. The actress can be soon seen in Disney+Hotsar release ‘Grahan’. The web series is inspired from the novel Chaurasi by Satya Vyas and is directed by Ranjan Chandel starring Zoya Hussain, Anshuman Pushkar, Pavan Malhotra, Sahidur Rahman, Wamiqa Gabbi and Teekam Joshi.
Talking to an exclusive chat with OTTplay, the actress spoke about character and show in which she will be portraying an IPS officer. When she was asked about how she became the part of the series, Zoya told that “Well, there are a lot of elements. Ranjan (director of the show) and I had worked earlier in Mukkabaaz and it was the first film for both of us. When I got to know that he’s doing this new project, I got really excited and then I got to know about the story and my character Amrita, who is the IPS officer in the show that intrigued me a lot”.
Being asked on how life changed after debuting in Mukkabaaz, the actress replied “Life has been wonderful after doing Mukkabaaz. Working on a film like that and with such a filmmaker, it opens up a lot of doors for you and a lot of opportunities, it gives other people a context about you, they get to know who you are”.
As Zoya has worked in both film and series, she was asked how different the experience was for her and she told that “I really didn’t realise how different they were. However, on a show, there’s so much time to go into detail. Even a conversation or a scene is just longer than the films”.
When the actress was asked about the character that she wants to play in future, she opened up that “A character in a period film or a spy thriller really intrigues me. Some great tragic story or dark comedy film would also be really great to work in. Honestly, I want to do everything”.
